Part of a workshop at the KISD, we were assigned to design the exhibition space for dutch media artist Mieke Gerritzen. Visualizing chairs that represented artists imaginatively attending 'the conference' through quotations that were handed to us. In my case, I was to visualize the philosopher Vilem Flusser through his words 'Everything is becoming absurd'.
. . . . . . .
A recurring theme in Flusser's work was the questioning of the meaning of freedom and the role of society in shaping this perception. I was inspired by Optical illusions to reflect his ideologies, that being an art of distrorting perception & an endless questioning of reason. The chair was further peeled and scratched & the remains left underneath portraying a work left unfinished.
